Peter King takes his “Monday Morning Quarterback” to new heights…

Peter King breaks down Eli Manning’s progress:

Peter_king_flopping_on_manning(Week 3) "Quietly, Eli Manning is proving he can handle
everything New York throws at him."

(Week 6) "If Eli Manning were a money-market fund, we’d all be rushing to buy. Instead, he’s an NFL quarterback, and we’re all rushing to get on the kid’s bandwagon.

Manning’s a fairly egoless quarterback who takes coaching very well for a man with his passing pedigree and lineage. And I applaud Manning for concentrating on what’s important and tuning out all the fluff in the media and fan world."

(Week 8) "7. New York Giants (6-2). Don’t kill Eli Manning for regressing and completing 8-of-22 passes for 59 yards in London. He was playing in a cranberry bog, from what I’ve heard about the Wembley

and finally….

(This Week) "a. This is not the negative New York media speaking. This is the impartial New Jersey media speaking. The more I see Eli Manning, the more I think he’ll never be a championship quarterback.

b. I mean, taking a 26-yard sack in the fourth quarter? Ridiculous. And could he please get mad once? Punch the ground, kick the dog, cuss out his linemen, something. You know what the Minnesota game plan for playing Manning was in part? Hit him a couple of times on his first few dropbacks, and the book on him was he’d start throwing off his back foot. Which he did."

    Er, I meant “Both Sides Of His Arse.” I’m an idiot.

    If Manning were a Patriot though, he could do no wrong in his eyes. Do you remember the articles he wrote chastising the Pats and Rodney Harrison for cheating? No, I never saw them either.

    If he could create his own special drink at Starbucks it would be called “The Gastriot”
